It is almost impossible to visit Kehlstein without visiting this restaurant, the lift basically drops you off in the restaurant. The staff are were quite friendly despite being rushed off their feet, to say it was busy was an understatement, so we decided just to have a drink. The interior is very German and that's to be expected. The open fire place, although not burning is pretty gorgeous, I wonder if it does get used from time to time. Lots of people visit this building for it's history but that can be seen as a shadow on this beautiful site, I found it to be a relaxed place even though there were a lot of people.

Nice garden atmosphere, with big picnic tables and oodles of beer and authentic Bavarian food. This is a place of big dumplings and lotsa pork! It's your quintessential beer garden experience, what's not to like?
Plus the sign outside the buildings bills it as a brewery and church! gotta love it just for that.

My family visited here after a long day visiting the Berchtesgaden area. The food was delicious and the service was great. Prices were reasonable. We would have loved to sit outside but the restaurant was so popular that there were no available tables.

The "Einkehr" Pizzeria is located directly in the pedestrian zone in Berchtesgaden. Why not enjoy a crispy pizza or a delicious pasta dish while appreciating the modern, Mediterranean ambiance? In the restaurant you can enjoy your espresso, cappuccino or red wine in summer and in winter on our Terrace. In winter, the Terrace invites you for a cuddly shoping break. In summer, enjoy a shady spot overlooking the busy pedestrian area of Berchtesgaden.
We sat outdoors under the umbrellas watching a downpour of summer rain. Did not order pizza, but the schnitzel was good and the hamburger over the top elaborate and very tasty fries.

One of Berchtesgaden's culinary and visual highlights - the Panorama Restaurant - is located on the sixth floor of the Edelweiss. Here, you can enjoy the combination of haute cuisine and unique atmosphere while admiring the spectacular view of the Watzmann and the Bavarian Alps. Through the glass facade of the Panorama restaurant you have unobstructed views of the Mountains of Berchtesgaden while eating, drinking and enjoying. In spring and summer we gladly serve you on the roof Terrace from which you also have a 360 degree view of the Mountains.
We enjoyed a plate of bratwurst and sauerkraut in the early afternoon on the comfortable Terrace overlooking the buzzing village square. Our visual entertainment was provided by an elderly, and seemingly map-befuddled, ladies walking club; some solid-looking local worthies in lederhosen and vernacular Bavarian jackets; and various other nationalities enjoying themselves. The prices were reasonable and the service efficient. Recommended.

Tucked away from the hurly burly of downtown Berchtesgaden, this jewel of a restaurant gives great food in generous portions and friendly service. I had the pork chop in a tasty German sauce, you know, the one neither we or the French can get right. Also a generous helping of spaetzle, the local pasta form. The meat was beautiful ans as the man sat behind me shouted ' Fantastisch!' . My wife had a WienerSchitzel, the best we have had. Please come and enjoy this wonderful place with magnificent views along the valley.

Dear Guest,We are very happy to greet you here in our lovely home.Whether for lunch or afternoon coffee and cake , we wish you a relaxing visit as you enjoy our spectacular mountain views. Everything we have to offer is prepared using only the freshest of meats and vegetables. Our pastries and cakes are home made and prepared with locally harvested eggs and the finest ingredients. Even our "Windbeutel", for which we are famous, are baked fresh daily and prepared in a variety of ways.The recipe for this house specialty has been a well kept secret for over 40 years. The Windbeutel was originally created by a pastry chef from Berlin, who frequently vacationed here in our home. We hope you enjoy your time here with us and thank you for your visit. We are open 10 am to 6 pm every day, but Wednesday. Unfortunately, we don't offer dinner, but we would be glad to serve you lunch (from 11 am to 4 pm).Our restaurant is easy to find. Just follow the road signs up the hill to "Kehlstein" and exit the roundabout on the road that leads further up the hill. After another 3 minutes of driving, you'll see our sign, which says "Gasthaus Graflhöhe", on your right.We are happy, if you are.As the guests are the center of our acting, we and our staff are hosts for who kindliness and cordiality are top priority.
Drove up her for lunch on the last day of our Alpenstrasse tour. Arrived just after 1pm on a Sunday and there were plenty of seats available (weather wasn't great, a little rain in the air).
The waitress showed us to a lovely table (inside, too cold & a little wet outside!), where we could enjoy the views. I had intended just to order the famous cake, but the food looked good and was inexpensive, so we decided we would have a beer (for me), wine (for wife) and a simple lunch (wiener sausage & chips for her and eggs, bacon & fried spuds for me). Food was delicious, and just the right portion size. We shared one Watzmann Windbeutelbaron cake afterwards. My! It is large, we struggled to eat it, even though we shared it! Loaded with whipped cream, plenty of vanilla ice cream inside, morello cherries around the base and the light choux-like pastry on top and bottom! Delicious, but too much!
An experience to savour though!

If you worry about getting authentic asian food in the european countryside - fear not. From a changing menu of tasty curries from all around asia, we picked red sri lankan beef curry and a chicken curry with black spices in a cashew sauce. Both were very good; the meat melted in your mouth and not too oily!
You notice quite a lot of commitment to quality - from the tender chicken, mint tea with fresh mint, to the long fragrant grains of basmati. Dessert was also a winner so if you have the space, definitely order.
The chef was friendly, the service warm and the food was top notch. Wish it were my local.
Book a table or go early.
To cater for everyone it’s not as spicy as some would like, but if you like it hot, just ask the chef (he gave us chilli on the side).
As a general rule they do not do takeaway in consideration of the environment. They will, however, happily oblige if you bring your own container.

Desperate for something to eat after a late arrival at our hotel, we were relieved that the kitchen @ Akropolis was still open. We were treated to some fantastic Greek food, the highlight being the grilled squid. That and the best view in town of the valley below and Mountains above, combined with a friendly and fun-loving staff, resulted in us going back there for dinner the following evening.

After a really bad experience in one of the local restaurants, we've decided to change our day for good and sat at the Forstner Cafe.
It was a sunny afternoon and there were lots of tables outside. The service was fast and good, or at least the lady, which was responsible for our table. We had coffee, cappuccino and a piece of apple cake, which was melting in the mouth. Both, the coffee and the cappuccino were very delicious.
The place inside has two levels and the second floor takes you to one of those pastry shops from the old times, with it's nice atmosphere and the smell of cakes and coffee.
